Valencell, STMicroelectronics launch biometric wearables devkit

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces How Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… Follow the Puck Tags:#Internet of Things#IoT#STMicroelectronics#Valencell#wearables Donal Powercenter_img Biometric wearables technology got a boost with the launch of a new development kit that improves accuracy and scalability.The new devkit was announced by chipmaker STMicroelectronics (ST) and Valencell, a maker of biometric data sensor technology.The development kit is aimed at accelerating the development of smart wearable and Internet of Things (IoT) products.The kit will involve ST’s SensorTile multi-sensor module that incorporates various IoT capabilities. The tiny module includes a Bluetooth Low Energy chipset, various motion and environmental MEMS sensors, a digital MEMS microphone and a powerful STM32L4 microcontroller.The kit will also include the Valencell Benchmark biometric sensor platform in order to support the development of advanced wearable products.“Valencell’s Benchmark solution leverages the high accuracy of ST’s MEMS sensor technology along with SensorTile’s miniature form factor, flexibility, and STM32 Open Development Environment-based ecosystem,” said STMicroelectronics’ Tony Keirouz. “Combined, SensorTile and Benchmark enable wearable makers to quickly and easily develop the perfect product for any application that integrates highly accurate biometrics.”Valencell aiming for simpler prototypingThe integration of Valencell’s Benchmark sensor tech with ST’s SensorTile development kit is aimed at simplifying the prototyping and evaluation of new wearable IoT products.“Working with ST has allowed us to bring together the best of all sensors required to support the most advanced wearable use cases through our groundbreaking Benchmark sensor system,” said Valencell president Steven LeBoeuf.”What attracted us to the SensorTile was the flexibility of the platform and the ultra-low power consumption, which will enable our customers to create highly-accurate and powerful wearables and hearables in any form factor.”The collaboration comes against the backdrop of a cooling wearables market in North America and an improving wearables outlook in China.In fact, an earlier report indicated that China may become the world’s largest wearable customer in 2017, if sales continue to surge as they have in 2016. In the past year, the country has seen an 84% increase in wearable sales, reaching 9.5 million between April and June this year.1Analyst firm IDC predicted 101 million wearable sales in 2016. Chima might take 30% of the entire wearable market in the next year, if sales in North America and Europe remain the same.

I-T officials raid house, offices of senior NCP leader Hasan Mushrif in Kolhapur

first_imgA team of the Income Tax Department on July 25 raided the residence and factory premises of senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and legislator Hasan Mushrif in Kolhapur district in western MaharashtraAn MLA from the Kagal Assembly seat, Mr. Mushrif, a former Minister who held the Labour portfolio in the erstwhile Congress-NCP government, is considered to be a tall leader of his party in the State’s ‘sugar belt’ region.According to sources, the I-T team swooped down on Mr. Mushrif’s bungalow in Kagal at around 5.30 a.m. while simultaneous raids took place at his son’s residence in Pune and his relatives’ house in Takala in Kolhapur.Officials also conducted searches at the Sar Senapati Santaji Ghorpade Sugar Factory in Kagal which is said to be controlled by Mr. Mushrif among other places.However, authorities declined to elaborate on the reason for the raids.A number of the NCP leader’s loyalists thronged outside his house to express solidarity as news of the raids spread throughout Kagal. A robust security shield was in place as the I-T officials conducted their searches and scrutinised documents at Mr. Mushrif’s house and office.The raids coincide with the exit of another important NCP leader Sachin Ahir, who jettisoned his position as his party’s Mumbai unit chief to enter the Shiv Sena, allegedly impressed with Aditya Thackeray’s leadership.The timing of the raid on Mr. Mushrif’s home has triggered speculation that the NCP leader’s alleged ‘refusal’ to join the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prompted the party to unleash the I-T Department on him.“Recently, at a public function in Kolhapur, newly appointed BJP State president Chandrakant Patil had made an open offer to Mr. Mushrif to ally with the BJP. But the NCP leader had snubbed Mr. Patil and instead questioned as to how, and from where, was the BJP able to secure enormous funds to ‘buy’ Congress legislators in Karnataka and destabilise the Congress-JD (S) government,” said an analyst, requesting anonymity.The raids on Mr. Mushrif’s house also come amid intense speculation of another NCP MLA, Vaibhav Pichad from Akole in Ahmednagar district, entering the BJP fold.Mr. Pichad, the son of senior NCP MLA Madhukar Pichad, is believed to have met with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis at the latter’s home ‘Varsha’ in Mumbai on Wednesday evening.The developments take place a week after Mr. Patil had confidently claimed that several legislators from the opposition NCP and the Congress were in contact with the BJP. Mr. Patil had also said that the opposition camp would witness a spate of resignations in the coming week.last_img read more
